Opal Cliffs House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful 3-Bedroom, 2-Bath home in the heart of local surf spots.

Live like the locals in this bright and airy home! Located just steps from Pleasure Point, and a short walk or bike ride to nearby beaches, shopping and dining, this 3-bedroom, 2-bath home is the ideal beach getaway.

The open floor plan provides the perfect setting for a relaxing family vacation or gathering of friends. Hardwood floors in common areas create a modern, yet beachy feel, while carpeted bedrooms provide the comforts of a 'home-away-from-home.' Vibrant, local artwork hangs on the walls, adding warmth and charm to the modern aesthetic.

Rise with the sun at the famed Santa Cruz 'Point', where you're bound to catch a great set. Afterward, grab a breakfast burrito at the Point Market and take in the local scene along East Cliff Drive from the front deck. Laze in front of the wood-burning fireplace with one of our many books, or take a meandering walk to Verve coffee down the road.

If you're feeling adventurous, head over to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, just 4 minutes away, or venture south and enjoy all the sites along the Monterey coast.

The spacious master suite includes a queen bed and private bathroom with tiled shower. A private entry provides easy access to the enclosed jacuzzi tub out back.

The second bedroom is bright, warm, and includes two twin beds and plenty of floor space -- perfect for kids or shared accommodations.

The third bedroom sleeps two in a comfortable queen bed.

At the heart of this charming home is the kitchen and dining area, where guests are bound to enjoy plenty of great meals and conversation. Gourmets and foodies will appreciate the tastefully appointed kitchen, including a Wolf cook-top range and island work area, as well as plenty of cookware and table settings.

The home is well-stocked with everything you need to enjoy your vacation, including blankets, linens, and towels. Wireless internet is available throughout.

Reservations are accepted for a minimum of three nights in Winter and seven nights in Regular and High Season. See Rates section for more details.

Check-in is at 3:00 p.m.; check-out by 10:00 a.m. Please, no smoking or pets allowed.

Amazing location, great house but needs maintenance and a deep cleaning

  • 3 of 5

We love this area and have stayed in Pleasure Point many times. You cannot beat this location. The house has a nice flow/layout, is spacious, has a front and back yard. It was clear that someone loves/loved this house but it is not maintained well, especially considering how much we paid per night. All the sofas were dusty and completely worn out, the master bed was like sleeping on a soggy noodle, our feet turned black from walking around on the carpet and wood floors, the main area rug in the front room was very dirty. The dishwasher didn't really work and the clothes washer didn't work at all (to be fair, she tried to send someone to fix it but it was still broken from day 2-8 when we left, it's tough to not have a clothes washer with small kids and nobody wants to spend their vacation at a laundromat). Could be an amazing house and I think it probably was once upon a time, but it needs love, maintenance, some new furniture and a deep cleaning.

We loved the house. It's a super location! You will not be disapointed. From the front porch, to the back patio there is no shortage of cool spots to relax.

Super chill and amazing

  • 5 of 5

My family needed to get away from it all and just relax this spring break. Jackie's house was perfect. The floorplan and indoor-outdoor living were just perfect for my family of five. We have small children and the gated front yard was where we spent the vast majority of our time. I have been renting vacation homes for 20 years and I have never had one before where I didn't have to do anything, fix anything or worry about anything. Jackie's house was immaculate, in good repair and extremely well equipped. Thank you so much for all the care you put into preparing it for your guests and for letting us rent it! We plan to be back! Just a note on the location - also could not be better. 5 mins walk from a great kid beach and 2 minutes from watching or participating in amazing surfing. The store right across the street was extremely handy as well.

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

This warm, spacious, and cozy beach house was an amazing find on our recent visit to Santa Cruz! It truly feels like home away from home. With its ample living spaces and comfy alcoves, it was hard to leave to explore the many sites and activities that Santa Cruz has to offer. But the allure of surfing Pleasure Point just steps away or hiking in the nearby Redwoods was enough to pull us away temporarily. And to return to such a lovely home after a day of adventure was like being greeted by an old friend. The house, with its multiple amenities, is fully stocked with everything we needed during our stay. Whether you want to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet this home can provide or go out and explore the nearby beauty of Santa Cruz, this location can't be beat! Looking forward to visiting again soon!

The Place to stay in Santa Cruz!

  • 5 of 5

This is the most perfect spot if you want to experience Santa Cruz! Right where surfing, scenic walks, shopping, fine dining, and arts & crafts mercantiles are literally within walking distance - you may never need to use your car! If you do, the Harbor, downtown, West Cliff scenic walk, and Boardwalk are worthy of your visit and only minutes away. The house is C-O-Z-Y and gives you that "feels-like-you're-at-home" experience. Hi-tech within! Jump in the spa after a surf session while the barbecue is going then feel the sun from the front deck while sipping a glass of wine. End the night by the fireplace watching your favorite big screen movie or curl up and read book in peace. These are the reasons why I come here every year and stay in this house. This is where you want your experience of Santa Cruz to begin!!

I highly recommend this beautiful beach house for a great getaway directly in front of ocean

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this beautiful beach house for a long holiday weekend. We hated to leave and have already booked the house for a week long stay for January. Located in the Pleasure Point neighborhood, this house is close to everything. We walked across the street for coffee each morning and watched the local surfers. It was so relaxing to sit out on the front deck. The kitchen was perfect for the few meals we cooked and the master bedroom was our gateway to the outdoor jacuzzi. We truly enjoyed the local feel of this house with it's beautiful art and furniture. I highly recommend this clean, safe, loving beach house.
